“In order to get legal assistance under written statements from
prisoners, their relatives and public organizations, prisoners are
granted a meeting with a lawyer or other expert in the field of law who
by law has the right to provide legal assistance in person or on behalf
of the entity. The office of the State Penitentiary Service in Kharkiv
region, ensuring prisoner Tymoshenko’s right to receive medical care,
will continue to provide doctors with unimpeded access to her,” reads a
joint statement by the office of the State Penitentiary Service in
Kharkiv region and the administration of Central Clinical Hospital No.
5, the text of which was obtained by Interfax- Ukraine.

The statement says that taking into account the recommendations of
German and Ukrainian doctors, visits to Tymoshenko by other individuals
“will be limited and made in accordance with the requirements of
Ukrainian legislation, and in the time free from the undergoing of
medical procedures.”

The authors of the statement noted that from August 5, 2011 to July
31, 2012 (during her stay in Kyiv’s prison, Kachanivska penal colony and
Central Clinical Hospital No. 5), Tymoshenko held over 340 meetings
with her lawyers, relatives and other persons and representatives of
foreign states and international organizations, which lasted more than
780 hours.
